The Frenchman joined Roma last summer from Lille and is under contract for a further season with the Serie A outfit.

"Garcia has one year left in his contract and hence, we have all the time to discuss his renewal," Roma general director Mauro Baldissoni said to

asromanews.it.

"We want to reciprocally extend our rapport. There is time to renew his contract."

Roma won 2-0 at Sassuolo on Sunday and are second in Serie A, 11 points behind league leaders Juventus with seven games remaining.

The Giallorossi can close the gap on Juve to eight points if they beat Parma on Wednesday, a game that was postponed back in February due to heavy

rainfall in Rome.

"I'm optimistic that Roma can win its remaining games," Baldissoni said. "With regards to Juve's advantage in the standings, we can only hope."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
